On the simple side, you could change points, plugs, oil, and filters.

first of all you dumbass, bmw does not make a 3 series v6. its an inline six.second of all, its going to be hard to beat his car cuz he has a rwd advantage.third of all, you shouldn't be racing to begin with.but if you wanted to go faster by a lil, find ways to make your car lighter, buy some headers, a huge cold air intake, new camshafts and spark plugs should be good too.but if you had a lot of money and help, you could easily find a turbo for that car.

First off if its a REAL 323 inline 6 and he's "barely" beating you then theres something wrong with HIS car. that car has a 100 HP advantage over the 140 HP ls Integra. SO either your story is stretching the truth or his car is garbage. But to answer your question, Get rid of the DOHC NON-VTEC engine, swap in a B18C1 from a GSR, convert it to manual, then add a nice turbo kit like Greddy, or Turbonetics and you will have a 300-350HP street monster.

lol An integra with a V4... wow what a rarity. (they are inlines not Vs.)

If money really isn't an issue I wouldn't even swap it with the B18c1 or 5... I would just go with the B18C. The JDM one. The engine is about 4k and the vtec on it SCREAMS.

if you don't really feel like swapping run about 12psi of boost on the current engine It will definitly give you some extra speed. I don't know if it will be the BMW just because i don't know enough about them.
